Yachting photographer Thierry Martinez has been swimming around the waters of Australia snapping unusual sealife 16/2/07

Take a look at these interesting underwater photos of a Blade rider design International Moth (foiler) taken by Thierry Martinez last week in Melbourne. Martinez said he took the photos in Blairgowrie (Victoria-Australia) in 2.8m of water.

The shape of the blade rider, designed by Andrew McDougall, is development of his previous designs the Hungry Tiger and Prowler. The result was a finer bow, straighter rocker, flatter bottom, squarer chines. The all-up weight of the boat including foils weighs under about 30kg.
